First Mention of UHJ Contribution to Tsunami Relief

This press release, dated yesterday, mentions that "The international governing council of the Bahá'í International Community, the Universal House of Justice, has made a contribution to the United Nations relief efforts, and Bahá'í communities in the countries most affected by the disaster have also made contributions to national relief organizations."

Which is terrific -- it was starting to be an embarrassment, that there was no news, and I wasn't the only one upset by it. I do, however, have some questions.

1. Why is there no reference to this is either the public or administrative websites of the US NSA, or even on the Baha'i News website?

2. What about contributions from the US or Canadian National Spiritual Assemblies?

3. Why is no dollar amount mentioned?

However, all in all, I'm pleased, and glad to have something good to announce for a change.
